Have a green Christmas and recycle your tree

Give a gift to the planet and remember to recycle your Christmas tree this festive season. You could even go that one step further and reuse your tree next year by re-potting or replanting it.

There are a number of ways residents can recycle their tree.

Trees can be taken to your local community recycling centre or to a local garden centre that offers a recycling option. Please check with the garden centre before making your trip.

Local councils have also arranged drop off points for Christmas trees to be recycled. Click on your area below to see a list of locations.

Woking residents can drop off their trees at one of the four locations shown below between the 5 – 16 January 2022. Areas will be signed at each location.

  • Woking Park Car Park, Kingfield Road, GU22 9BA
  • Brookwood Country Park Car Park, Redding Way, GU21 2AY
  • Sheerwater Recreation Ground Car Park, Blackmore Crescent, GU21 5NZ
  • Pyrford Recreation Ground Car Park, Pyrford Common Road, GU22 8LE

If you’re a garden waste customer then your tree can be chopped down to fit into your garden waste bin for collection. Please check the service update pages for the latest updates on collections.

Please note, we can only accept real Christmas trees. Please ensure all decorations and lights are removed from the tree prior to recycling.
